VICTORIA’S sixth COVID-19 lockdown is nearing its fourth week.
The vaccination hub at Bayside Shopping Centre in Frankston was named a tier two exposure site last week after a positive COVID-19 case got the jab there. Anyone who visited the vaccination centre on 16 August between 11.30am and 12.45 pm must get tested and isolate until they receive a negative result.
A statement on Peninsula Health’s Facebook page said that the positive case had no symptoms while at the hub. “The Frankston Community Vaccination Hub remains open and is safe for you to visit if you have a booking for your COVID-19 vaccination. To make a booking, please call 1800 675 398 or you can book online through the Department of Health’s website,” the statement read.
COVID-19 restrictions were tightened last week in a bid to quash the growing number of cases in Victoria. Additional restrictions were placed on the construction industry, with further staffing reductions put into place. Use of playgrounds, basketball hoops, skate parks, and outdoor exercise equipment has been banned, with exercise also now limited to just two people from a household. People can also not remove their masks to drink alcohol in public places.
